  • Welcome to the Traffic-Roadway Section (TRS)
    Traffic Engineering Operations and Roadway Engineering combined to form the new Traffic-Roadway Section (TRS) under the leadership of Bob Pappe. Bob's many years of engineering and management experience makes him an excellent statewide leader in traffic-roadway engineering and operations matters. Bob leads a team of talented, knowledgeable managers that has a wealth of combined experience.
  • Rumble Strip Program
    Roadway departure fatalities are a serious and often preventable problem. The Federal Highway Administration reports that 54 percent of all highway fatalities in the U.S. are caused by drivers leaving their lane of travel. Our before and after crash analysis found that head-on fatalities were reduced by 40 percent with the installation of centerline rumble strips.
    Rumble strips are grooved patterns that make a rumbling sound and physical vibration that immediately warns inattentive drivers that they’re leaving their driving lane. Rumble strips allow drivers to self-correct and avoid a crash. Learn more about our centerline and shoulder rumble strip program, and why we call rumble strips, “the sound of safety.”
